Echinodorus Cordifolius - Just bought one from my LFS and it has a small plantlet attached to the main plant by a long stem. Should I plant this plantlet in the substrate or just let it float? Should I leave it attached to the main plant untill it reaches a certain size? Its only about an inch or two tall right now. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I think the rule of thumb is wait till it has 5-7 leaves or has roots on it. I would wait until it gets roots if i were you, that way you know that it will stay in the substrate without too much fuss.
